allegiance. giffords was severely wounded in an attack last year. >>> the fbi is investigating a nasty hoax, a woman and her new boyfriend allegedly pulled on her ex. a u.s. airways flight to dallas returned to philadelphia thursday. officials had gotten a call that christopher shell had explosives on board. he was on his way home to celebrate his 29th birthday. instead he was taken off the plane at begun point. cbs news learned his ex's new boyfriend may have placed the call. shell didn't help by posting on facebook that a friend escorted him through security. >> the only thing i did do is walk through with him and guide him around and help him carry things and tell him what the regulations were. >> but shell ended up spending his birthday in jail. he was arrested when he arrived in dallas on outstanding warrants. all kind of drama. >>> last night's pittsburgh/cincinnati football game in ohio, a member of the band did a lip-synching. cameras caught a trumpet player tumbling down the stadium steps. it caused his instrument to break apart. he managed to put the trumpet back together but miss
learn from bret baier and his reporting as of right now there hasn't been a single fbi agent on the ground in benghazi. we're all looking toward that investigation because that's what we're told from the administration will provide more answers, the fbi investigation, if no one is on the ground what are we to make of that? >> i think you make a couple of things. why is anybody not on the ground? is it too dangerous for the fbi to go there? secondly if the administration says, hold your horses wait until we got full investigation and we find out there is no investigation, again, it is that drip, drip, drip. what did they know? when did they know it? why are they trying to cover it up and what is going on? it wasn't so unsafe in benghazi a cnn reporter went there several days ago and got the ambassador's personal diary. maybe somebody is there but not the united states fbi. jenna: we'll watch the continuing to develop story. kt, thanks for your insights. well have much more on the controversy over the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. top senators on the senate foreign rel
's one of the worst things i found out. that depressed me a great deal. this came out of the fbi records. there is material there suggesting that j. edgar hoover really organized a campaign among some of his agents to talk publicly, loud voices, about how adlai stevenson was gay. and hoover did keep a file on stevenson. you know that he had this special closet of stuff in his office. and he would also tell fbi agents to try to circulate this in chicago. so this is one of these sort of hidden rumors that in '52 nobody talked about this openly; it was too soon. but there was a lot of whispering around about how adlai stevenson was gay. and this was totally untrue and totally unfair. and so when we think about dirty campaigns, i think we've got to remember 1952 as a very dirty campaign. c-span: you say that near the end he ballooned to 200 pounds. >> guest: 220 pounds, yeah. c-span: what was his normal weight when he was governor? >> guest: probably about 160, 180. c-span: what happened? >> guest: well, i think the last part of his life he really became somewhat obsessive. he did have a fam
: the fbi says 26-year-old kenneth w. smith jr. of philadelphia admitted making the telephone call to police that forced the us airways jet bound for dallas to turn around in midair. >> no comment, please. >> reporter: but that was the beginning of a high-flying drama that resulted in the arrest of a man who used to date smith's girlfriend. in the phone call, authorities say smith claimed that christopher schell, a passenger on the plane, was carrying a liquid explosive. a s.w.a.t. team surrounded the plane in philadelphia and removed schell in handcuffs but they found no explosives. steve mcneil was sitting next to him. >> going back to texas for a birthday. the company he was works for was paying for him to go back, said he just broke up with his girlfriend. >> reporter: schell told authorities that he believed his ex-girlfriend and smith were responsible for the phone call threat. schell was released without charges and allowed to fly on to dallas. the fbi arrested smith and charged him with giving false and misleading information about an explosive device. >> it's just an incredibly fool
with fixing it. things like the supervision of the process of investigation is very different for the fbi then it is for atf. my basic question is why? why does fbi have one supervising and atf has a different process overseen by the same doj. the scope of the task that you mention in your report with atf if there is irregular functioning criminal function overlap at times and there are obvious issues. and i'm going to either tunica comment. the size of the agency and what they're trying to accomplish. as i read through your report, got to page 338 and there was a very interesting comment that basically alluded to the fact that atf of phoenix is over their head. they were trying to take on the massive task in outlets like they were trying to accomplish something big, but they didn't have the right people, were not coordinated this particular group of asians were in way over their head and should not be engaged. again, goes back to the scope of the task. i've got one more issue it to visit, but i want to talk about the issue of regulatory versus criminal responsibility in the task given to

,000 from a developer, and failed to disclose it as a gift and only when the fbi started asking about it did it get reported as a quote, unquote, loan. he said i needed stuff -- i needed stuff for my house. he had just gotten a sweetheart deal from a real estate -- >> john: you know this goes back to what i think of nixon getting money to buy his house on seaside, so he got the house somehow, and then more money has been funneled to congressman meeks? >> yes, the house he thought he made $833,000 for it. >> john: is this where we bought the house from a loan from an indicted new york businessman. >> no that was from a developer, butten in he got a loan from another developer. and loans can, of course be gifts under house ethics rules. but in any event. it really did look like a gift. a loan can be a gift if you are getting the loan because you are a member of congress -- >> so they are just like us then? >> yeah, we have seen a lot of people get in trouble over the loan problem. >> john: so rivera meeks, and vern buchanan. >> we have been focusing on him since 2006.
for customers logging in for now is just an inconvenience, simon. we should note that the fbi said that this problem largely affected the small to medium sized banks and credit unions, those large banks of course are not excluded from this. back to you. >> in a collective move, the defense secretary leon panetta is in china this week. he met with china's likely heir apparent who was of course inexplicably missing from the public scene until just a few days ago. japanese attacks on our u.s. companies and the infrastructure, panetta says he brought up the issue at every session but came away with little more than agreements to keep talking with the chinese. >> indeed, simon. a federal reserve report out today shows household net worth in the u.s. fell between april and june of this year. household debt rose a rate of 1.3%. that's the biggest jump since the first quarter of 2008. >>> jpmorgan meanwhile is ramping up its call on the s&p 500. they are expecting a melt-up into election day with the s&p exceeding 1,495 short term. jeff kilburg, what do you think. >> it is hard to disagree
was director of the fbi before he became the administrator. the tsa and mr. was a vacant position. there was an act did -- activity in there. it took them a while. when they got somebody in there, mr. pistol, everybody agreed he was a great man for the job, and he has made his goal to try to make tsa smarter. as a man who came on board at the fbi and saw the intelligence world grow after 9/11, he wanted to do the same with tsa and have them be a little bit leaner, smarter, and a manifestation of that is the new trust it traveler initiative. if you file on time and they know your history, you're not a terrorist, the odds are. they're using common sense in applying a trusted traveler system so they can focus their resources of people they know less about. host: the head of the tsa made a comment last month, talking about the type of terrorist threat that concerns him the most. [viceo clip] >> the concern is not so much we know who are on the watch list -- >> you can see the rest of this act c-span.org. the title. the clerk: report to accompany house resolution 773, resolution provid
, from the f.b.i., and from the administration discussing this very question. gathering all the information we possibly can, making sure we have the facts before we make a quick judgment about the role of libya, the role of terrorists and what we've seen to date. it's a response by the libyan government, even the firing of one of their top officials who made an inappropriate remark relative to this attack. so, in conclusion, madam president, i encourage my colleagues to pause and look at the larger picture when it comes to foreign aid. cutting off aid and disengaging from these countries is exactly what the perpetrators of these attacks and protesters are trying to achieve. i do not know if supporting the governments in this volatile region in this revolutionary movement will bring us the results we so urgently need. but if we are to review thoroughly the tools available to us -- and i'm convinced that we must -- we should not begin by throwing out the tools that we have. we need to sharpen those tools and better define their use but not discard them prematurely. madam presi

, what can you tell us? >> reporter: good morning, kate. we understand that an fbi team of special agents has arrived here in benghazi. they're keeping a low profile for security reasons and are expected to at some point begin investigating what exactly happened at that consulate. they're going to sift through the ashes and look for any clues that can identify any individuals involved in that attack. we know that the u.s. military has deployed its resources, including drones and other intelligence gathering mechanisms to try to keep an eye and ear out for any of these people involved. they're getting a lot of cooperation from the libyan government. the libyan government says that they believe this was a pre-planned attack, not an outburst of spontaneous violence. and they're also saying that they have four individuals in custody that they are questioning who may have possibly important information that could benefit the americans. they also have several other individuals under surveillance. but as we've seen in the past, one of the more difficult things here on the ground is to actually m

intrusions and the threat and sophistication of these attacks is growing as we speak. earlier this year, f.b.i. director robert mueller warned that, and i quote -- "the cyber threat will pose the number-one threat to our country in the near future." now, mr. president, the reason i came here today, in addition to acknowledging the sacrifice of those that were made on september 11 and the sacrifice that have been made by tens of thousands if not millions of americans since then and the kind of efforts that have been put in place that will hopefully prevent us from such an attack in the future is to discuss a failure on the part of this congress to address this most imminent and threatening attack, the cyber attack that i previously mentioned. the week before the august recess -- and particularly in an election year, of course will always be filled with partisanship here in washington, but we really hit a low point this year in adjourning for the august recess as we rushed to vote on a cyber bill, which i did support, but did not convey the wishes of many of us who have worked for weeks and mont
. in june of 2009, fbi director robert mueller acknowledged the immense challenge facing the bureau stating, it is not sufficient for us as an organization to respond to a terrorist attack after it has occurred. it is important for us as an organization to develop the intelligence to anticipate a terrorist attack. developing intelligence, developing facts. and in the past we looked at collecting facts for the courtroom. we now have to think of ourselves as gathering facts and painting a picture of a particular threat understanding the risk and moving to reduce that risk. and i couldn't agree more with the director's statement. and then on november the 5th, 2009, a gunman walked into the soldier readiness center at fort hood, texas, and shouted the classic jihadist terminal la act bar -- allahu akbar and opened fire on soldiers and civilians. he killed 13 and wounded 42 others. this was the most horrific terror attack on u.s. soil since 9/11. today we will examine the facts of the fort hood case as we know them to better understand how these facts that seem so obviously alarming now were so

and political manipulation. johnson was told they presumed murderer, a defector, was seen by the fbi trying to go to the embassy in mexico city. this is on the johnson tapes. he was very worried that if americans knew all of this, he would be so serious to attack the cuban military, maybe even the soviet union, so he called in the chief justice and he said please leave this commission. .. >> guest: his very close krone think and confidant, he made a place for him by enticing goldberg to get off the court to go to the u.n. where jonathan assured him you could make peace in vietnam with me. goldberg wasriou >> guest: we don't know why johnson did it.now johnson lived through the new tr deal, saw how the supreme court really hurt roosevelt just as president obama's health care law would have been a politicall blow and . would be very improper. and when he made, he appointed the chief justice in 1968, the nomination was killed for a number of reasons, bun of them was that -- but one of them was that there was too much that he was writing speeches for johnson, was on the telephone with him all t
